Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr set the bar high when he made an NBA comparison for Duke Blue Devils star Zion Williamson. 

Kerr didn't reference Williamson by name in a likely attempt to avoid running afoul of NBA rules—referring to Williamson as "the one who's 285 [lbs.]—but the inference was clear when he told reporters Wednesday the next LeBron James could be making his way to the Association soon, per The Athletic's Anthony Slater.

Williamson caught the attention of basketball fans by virtue of his thunderous dunks in high school. He was also the fifth-best player overall in the 2018 recruiting class, per 247Sports' composite rankings.
